READ

Wikipedia : This day (January 6, 1993), in Englewood, New Jersey, died Dizzy Gillespie, an American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, composer and occasional singer.

Dizzy Gillespie : He eventually began experimenting and creating his own style which would eventually come to the attention of Mario Bauza, the Godfather of Afro-Cuban jazz who was then a member of the Cab Calloway Orchestra

Dizzy Gillespie@allmusic : Gillespie was such a complex player that his contemporaries ended up copying Miles Davis and Fats Navarro instead, and it was not until Jon Faddis’ emergence in the 1970s that Dizzy’s style was successfully recreated.

@last.fm : His memorable trademarks were distending his cheeks while playing (unlike most trumpet players, who are trained not to do this) and a trumpet whose bell was bent at a forty-five degree angle rather than a traditional straight trumpet.
